I think this does work better for this very short format. Not losing time in explaining a words heritage frees time to explain the core idea. I think this enhances Aarons text in a concise way. Well done! I like how this text fragment gets brushed and brushed like a raw diamond. :) I also like the idea of a more detailed video taking its time to address the whole snowdrift dilemma explanation instead of brushing over it really quick. It alone would justify to motivate people to watch more videos.
